Thursday, August 9, 2018

Starting Aug. 10, the twin trifecta will be forced out every Friday afternoon at Wheeling Island with a guaranteed pool of $10,000.

Currently, the twin trifecta jackpot is forced out only after it reaches $10,000 and is capped.

The twin trifecta is for Races 9 and 11 on the racing card. When forced out, the pot usually climbs to between $30,000 and $40,000.

Years ago at Wheeling, the twin trifecta was forced out every Thursday evening and was popular with racing fans.

I was introduced to greyhound racing by a friend in the late 1970s at Wheeling Downs and fell in love with the sport and the athletes immediately. Throughout the years, I have developed a deep passion for racing. In the mid 1990s, I started writing a weekly greyhound column and shortly thereafter became a writer for The Greyhound Review.

I have enjoyed watching and writing about these wonderful competitors, including All-Americans DD's Nelson, Kiowa Sweet Trey, Gene's Champion, WW Apple Jax, Greys Royalcrown, Nimby TP Jan, Hi Noon Hero, Gable Sour Cream, KB's Ruckus and Cry Case.
